Pictorial Meadows, based in Sheffield, create annual and perennial seed mixes from a blend of native and non-native species. Combining ecology, design and a rigorous approach to quality, the company brings together horticulturalists, designers, ecologists, landscapers and of course a hard working Dispatch Team.
Pictorial Meadows' Annual Mixes provide the easiest, most colourful and reliable of displays. They offer the real wow-factor and are suitable to use in all areas from planters and small front gardens to parks and field -scale landscapes. Sowing rate is 2.5 grams -3grams per sq metre.
Perennial Mixes provide an idealised impressionistic meadow. They are very suitable as a transition between more formal plantings and a purely natural scheme. They are more sustainable than annuals in the long term and offer exciting new design possibilities. They do however require much more careful preparation and attention through to the end of their first year. After that management and maintenance is relatively simple but well-timed operations will always be critical. Sowing rate is 1-2 grams per sq metre.
Pictorial Meadows also offer Bespoke Meadow Mixes for our contract customers. Work on new meadows is evolving all the time, you can phone for details or book one of our summer seminars to see what's coming next.
